Keep folder tabs locked when changing view mode

Vainly tried to find a way to lock the folder tabs in that sense that, whenr changing from Explorer to Images or to Filmstrip,
the tabs remain in place.
Can lock the tabs in Explorer mode, but after changing mode, the tabs are gone.
I'd like to have the tabs, let's say, 'carried over' from one mode to the other.
Tried Styles-'tab button' and untag 'Close existing folder tabs'
That did not work.


btw -thought only 1 tab per folder cud be opened, i.e. opening same folder in many tabs wud be blocked...?

Styles don't modify the open tabs unless you set them up that way.

I was 'clearing' "Close existing Folder Tabs" whilst being on the 'Left File Display'...
oh oh..
